Cards color man: “Kolb is a leader”

After signing a big money contract the Arizona Cardinals two years ago, QB Kevin Kolb was only able to make 14 starts in Arizona.

But the color commentator on the Cardinals Radio Network says Kolb was a great leader in the team’s locker room.

Western New York native Ron Wolfley talked about Kolb Wednesday night, in an appearance on The John Murphy Show. And he says despite having trouble staying healthy, Kolb had already won over his Cardinals teammates.

“He’s a guy who can make all the throws,” Wolfley said. “He’s a good leader. The guys in the locker room absolutely love him.”

Wolfley says the problem with Kolb’s two year tenure in the desert was his inability to stay healthy.

“The problem with Kevin Kolb has always been durability,” Wolfley told host John Murphy. “He’s plenty tough. He took a beating here last year with the offensive line and the problems the Cardinals had there. For the first six games of the season before he finally went down, he took an absolute beating. My question is, is he durable? He only played in 15 of 32 games over a two year tenure here in Arizona.”

Wolfley said in his radio appearance that Kolb has largely been the victim of bad luck during his star-crossed NFL career.

“That’s not his fault, that’s his mom and pop, that’s DNA. There’s not much you can do about that. Your body’s either built to stay on the field, or it’s not.”
